Branden Albert is Arizona Cardinals top target in free agency

New, comment

With the pool of offensive tackles entering free agency being stacked at the top-end, the Bengals still have a realistic shot to retain Anthony Collins.

It's been a forgone conclusion that the Arizona Cardinals are ready to make a huge push to sign Kansas City Chiefs free agent Branden Albert. Not only are they looking to sign him, Albert is also Arizona's top target in free agency, according to Kent Somers with the Arizona Republic.

The Miami Dolphins and Cardinals appear to be the most active teams looking for an offensive tackle. According to multiple reports, Albert is the top offensive tackle for both teams. As noted above, Roger Saffold is being targeted by the Cardinals, but also the Dolphins, who are also interested in offensive tackles Eugene Monroe and Jared Veldheer.

If we were to make a guess, the league may wait to see how those four play out before Bengals free agent Anthony Collins generates interest among other teams.

Unlike Michael Johnson, it's still realistic that Cincinnati retains Collins.
